  • The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct publicly admonished a judge for diverting funds from a not-for-profit corporation connected to the court to a law professor for research expenses that they had agreed to share in their private authorship of a hornbook on New York estates administration and failing to supervise the hiring of interns who worked in the court and were paid by corporate funds, which led to a patronage system for the relatives of full-time court employees.
